Sevilla keeps up the top-four push with a dramatic Granada win.

Date:

Sevilla has significantly increased the possibility of securing a top-four spot this season by a 4-2 win at home to local rivals Granada. 

Julen Lopetegui’s side moves to second place in La Liga overnight with a seven-point cushion inside the Champions League qualification spots. 

However, despite the final result, the visitors started the brighter of the two teams as Darwin Machis fired them into an early lead.

However, despite the final result, the visitors started as the better side of the two teams. Darwin Machis led them into an early lead with a reasonable effort. 

Diego Carlos rose to nod Sevilla immediately level. Still, Lopetegui’s charges struggled for fluency on either side of the break before Lucas Ocampos poked them in front with 25 minutes left. 

That triggered a frantic finale between the Andalucian neighbors as skipper Victor Diaz deservedly pushed Granada level with two minutes remaining to the end of regular time.

But their wild celebrations were ruthlessly cut short in added time, as Rafa Mir had other plans and volleyed home Ocampos’ knockdown, and Papu Gomez swept home a fourth in the tenth minute of added time.
